    Hi Misbrew, I have some knowledge on the connex, Several things could be causing this, so I need some info from you. First, what kind of work has been done to it? What is your skill level on trouble shooting? Are you comfortable taking the covers off the radio?

    Get back to me when you can I am pretty sure we can work this one out.
    Thanks for using fixya and Happy New Year.

My radio squeals with echo when my amps on


adjust your talkback to just open then set your echo to where you want it. Now turn your amp on and re-adjust both the talkback and the echo . If you have a speaker nearby the radio may be feeding back through it so move it away from your radio . Now start talking with the mic and adjust your echo because you should be able to hear yourself talk through your talkback.

I have an echo mic on my 29. I can't use mic gain at all without it squeeling. Can barely here my talk back in this position.


re do the talkback. take out the resistor for the talkback. and put in the talkback that is a little outta phase and you won't get that constant feed back. make sure all the modulation limiters are not cut also.. A good shop would tune up and talk back a radio correctly for $10-$15 dollars. any more and they are ripping you off. I make sure my customers radios do not squeal before giving it back. that means i may have to try different values for the talk back to be right. so the customer can have the mic gain 100 % and it be ok...then the microphone mic adjustment can be set also.. let me know if you need help

I have a dx98vhp and it sqeels* when i key up when the talkback is on. I've tried adjusting the power and i can't figure it out. Thanks


the talkback is too loud. there is no way to adjust the talkback volume on this radio. Talkback is really just so you can check how your audio sounds and your echo. Once it set, there is really no need to have it on.

Turning down the gain on your mic will stop the squeal.

the squeal is cause by feed back from audio from the talk back being heard from the mic.

Sound coming through my speakers


That is normal especially with stereo's without alot of filtering,but there are a few things you can do to try to alleviate some of it ; move your c.b. as far away as you can like maybe mount it on the transmission hump.Don't have the positives connected directly to the battery.Don't have your antenna close to the speakers,and while were talking antennas make sure your swr is low.If none of this helps think of it this way some people pay big $$ to have talkback in their radio you have it for free also though this is probably more important MAKE SURE all your wire connections are good ( no frayed wires ) . Good luck Dan

When i talked no one can hear me but it move move the meter.


This may be a simple and very basic problem with all Cobra models. Honestly I wouldn't ever choose a Cobra, they're cheap radios. Instead buy a Galaxy or Uniden. But have you tried the Mic Gain? If not, turn the Mic Gain knob fully clock-wise and try asking for a radio check, if this doesn't solve it, you also might want to check the microphone's connecting ports, the connecting ports may be damaged or corrupted, if so, you can replace them by buying a new connecting port. If this doesn't work, your transmitter may be damaged or corrupted, this can be fixed, but it is expensive, you're better off getting a new radio. And don't forget, some truckers are dipshits (no offense) and ignore a lot of people.
